The Magician reminds us that we were born with everything we need to manifest all that we desire. You have all the tools you need to attract the life you want; it's just a matter of learning how to use those tools properly.
The Magician is encouraging you to tap into your full potential.
We are all a unique mixture of the four elements: Air, Fire, Water, and Earth. It's important that we learn how to use and combine these varying elements - which show up as facets of our personality - to our benefit. When we learn to harness both our strengths and weaknesses, we become powerful creator beings.
We shape our reality through our dominant thoughts and emotions. If we can learn to control the mind, we're able to create the life of our dreams. The Magician wants you to know that it's time to have confidence in your ability to influence the reality around you.
When you receive the Magician card in a general reading, it's a sign that it's time to live up to your full potential. Now is the time to discover and step into your true power. Take action on whatever it is that you desire, and don't let fear hold you back. You are magic. You can manifest anything you invest your energy into.
If you receive the Magician in a love reading, this is your reminder that you have the power to manifest the relationship of your dreams. While you can't control others and manifest a specific person, you DO have the power to change your personal frequency, so that you'll be able to attract someone who is on your level. If you're single, make sure you're creating opportunities to put yourself out there to meet new people. Get clear on what you want in a partner and visualize these qualities coming into existence.
If you receive the Magician card in a career reading, this is your call to channel your inner strength, willpower, and drive. You will find success by staying committed to your vision. Don't give up until you accomplish what you set out to. Make sure to take action on any work-related opportunities that come up for you now.
If the Magician shows up in your reading with negative aspects, this indicates that you're not living up to your full potential. Limiting beliefs are preventing you from seeing just how powerful you really are. Work on having more faith in your ability to manifest the life of your dreams. As many others have already said, "If you can dream it, you can achieve it."
The Magician with negative aspects can also mean that there's some trickery going on in regards to the situation you've enquired about. Someone may be abusing their power or trying to manipulate the circumstances surrounding you. Be careful whom you trust.
